MAJORIZED MULTI-AGENT CONSENSUS EQUILIBRIUM FOR 3D COHERENT LIDAR IMAGING

thesis
posted on 2024-05-06, 20:10 authored by Tony AllenTony Allen
Coherent lidar uses a chirped laser pulse for 3D imaging of distant targets.However, existing coherent lidar image reconstruction methods do not account for the system's aperture, resulting in sub-optimal resolution.Moreover, these methods use majorization-minimization for computational efficiency, but do so without a theoretical treatment of convergence.

In this work, we present Coherent Lidar Aperture Modeled Plug-and-Play (CLAMP) for multi-look coherent lidar image reconstruction.CLAMP uses multi-agent consensus equilibrium (a form of PnP) to combine a neural network denoiser with an accurate physics-based forward model.CLAMP introduces an FFT-based method to account for the effects of the aperture and uses majorization of the forward model for computational efficiency.We also formalize the use of majorization-minimization in consensus optimization problems and prove convergence to the exact consensus equilibrium solution.Finally, we apply CLAMP to synthetic and measured data to demonstrate its effectiveness in producing high-resolution, speckle-free, 3D imagery.
